I finished another track with the TG One using the longer samples card to make drones but wanted to really give a go at the looping feature. I ended du doing this in a couple of hours :

A looping drone from the Tip Top Audio TG One with a Cursus drone swelling in and out, Loquelic doing some noise going though a phaser a a couple delays.

Digitakt doing all things percussion.
Analog Heat warming stuff.

I really quite like the dubby vibe in this one.

So more of my stuff using the same setup here : https://soundcloud.com/tumulishoomaroom

Sounds really good! I love the drone chug SlayerBadger!
Tumulishroomaroom
Thank you very much ! I like the drones too smile

Here's another one in a similar vein to test out Manis Iteritas :

Love both of these, especially the first one. Reminds me of Marcel Dettman, very slick! How did you make the kick? Got a real nice refined punch to it.
Tumulishroomaroom
Thank you very much !
I haven't messed with creating my own kicks much yet, this one is a sample processed a little in the Digitakt, definitely some low pass, but nothing crazy. It's a simple kick really, not too much low end since the drone is already quite heavy sub-wise. The Analog Heats helps a lot to have it stand out, with the pseudo compression.

Great stuff!!
Tumulishroomaroom
Thank you ! That's really appreciated !
Tumulishroomaroom
Thank you ! Very appreciated !

Here's a new one, a new take on a previous drone loop :


[s]https://soundcloud.com/tumulishoomaroom/unsynced-manis[/s]

Manis Iteritas does the stabs coming halfway, Chimera does all sorts of noises/hats and then the Digitakt does the rest of the percussion duties while the Heat, as usual, HEATS.

Thanks a lot, glad you like those !

Very nice! I like!

Forgot to post here for a while ! Here's something new; an embryo of a live set I'm working on with a friend. It is half my modular and digitakt and half his Ableton and controllers. We've had a lot of fun recording this live straight from the mixer, now we need to push it to 45min/1h !

Hope you enjoy !

So funny, I've been working on a similar idea for the last month or so. 45min/1hour improvised set using a 6U case and some other bits and pieces of gear. It takes a lot of planning and patching wouldn't you say?

A lot of the "modular jams" I see online wouldn't work in front of an audience who are not into modulars. Yours is the first one I heard that could totally work in a club. It sounds great, both sonically and musically. Keep us posted thumbs up

I does indeed take a lot of clever patching and a lot of planning. There's nothing quite like putting you in this "live" mindset to streamline your 6u; I know I've changed it a lot because I could tell immediately things that worked and things that didn't. I've very recently acquired a ER-101 and I think this is going to be key in being able to keep prepare things in advance and have a good chunk of sequences ready to be live tweaked. But it would be a lot more stressful to do all this by myself; it's great to have someone else taking care of the kicks for example, you know he'll hammer something while I'm tweaking a patch on the modular. It is a really good mix. I think the modular sounds mesh really well with those of his plug-ins; obviously I can tell which is which but I don't think there's such a gap in timbres and feeling.

In any case thank you for listening ! The goal is definitely to be able to play clubs and an audience that just wanna dance and doesn't give a damn if I'm using a modular or whatever; so there's a strong incentive to keep things going strong at all times.

I certainly could not tell which was modular and which was ableton, so you've definitely succeeded there. I think if the audience knows that you are playing live they will grant you a little more patience, but not a whole lot. So transitions become really important - how and when? - probably a lot to learn from DJs in that department.

I've arranged and re-arranged my rack a few times over as well. I finally ordered the last few modules that I realized I needed, so I should start practicing soon. It's funny how we lust over the fanciest oscillators and then end up getting a slew limiter (I know I did). hihi
Tumulishroomaroom
Oops forgot to respond ! Thank you again. Indeed the DJ approach works really well, I think it's good to try and work a live set around such an ideal of tracks blending into each other.

Anyway here is a new one, by myself, slow, drone-heavy, psychedelically pounding.


[s]https://soundcloud.com/tumulishoomaroom/repetitive-heavy[/s]

It's mostly TG One + Chimera, with some Loquelic Iteritas and a good chunk of Lyra 8.

That sounds pretty cool as a set starter. I'd be curious to see how you would blend into the next track.

Thank you ! Yeah I though so too, but for the live sets I just re-cretate some elements of my songs and blend them with with friend's other stuff; I haven't really worked on a 'solo' live set yet. I would need to prepare much more recall-able stuff with samples from the modular on the DT.


Here's one little experience to discover WMD's Fracture :

I've been listening to the album Wilderness from Scarpa a lot recently, and so I have been trying to go into more percussive stuff. Nothing close from this masterpiece but here's a first try :

[s]https://soundcloud.com/tumulishoomaroom/percussive-rain[/s]
Lots of TG One, Chimera and Fracture, + Manis Iteritas going through a Rainmaker.

I'm quite pleased with this one really.
Tumulishroomaroom
Here's a new one where I've tried to incorporate the Lyra 8 as well as the newly arrived DFAM. Also a lot of Fracture and Chimera as well as a Manis through a Rainmaker that adds many dots of sound in the stereo space.

Hi !

Finally some news regarding the live project; we hadn’t been able to see each other for a while but things are back on track now. Really happy as to where we are now, I think we are pretty much ready.

Here’s a live recording we did this past weekend : one stereo take warmed up in post through the Heat, done with a mix and match of Ableton Live and 12u of modular with a good deal of live tweaking/improv for both.

Here’s the video :
